Unified resources marking system as a way to develop artificial intelligence in construction

Artificial intelligence in the construction industry can become a practical tool for analyzing and managing the supply of building material and technical resources for construction sites, and can also be used as an automated recording of the movement of used and damaged resources.

Abstract
 
One of the tasks of the construction organization is timely and complete provision of construction sites with the necessary and high-quality material and technical resources. However, the modern market approach can't guarantee a constant high quality of products at minimal costs. Minimize the risks for construction organizers the authors of the article suggest through the implementation of a system of unified (continuous) marking of construction material and technical resources. A unified system for marking material and technical resources in construction is proposed to be realized through the use of artificial intelligence and special bar codes applied directly to the packaging of building materials. Such a code can contain necessary and sufficient information about the resource, for example, the identification number of the building material or tool, the series of products, the manufacturer, the expiry date or the service life, information that allows tracing the originality of the resource and its quality.
 
Artificial intelligence in the construction industry can become a practical tool for analyzing and managing the supply of building material and technical resources for construction sites, and can also be used as an automated recording of the movement of used and damaged resources. The implementation of a unified marking system for construction products at the enterprise level opens up broad prospects for quality control of the products supplied, maintaining registers of bona fide and unscrupulous suppliers. The implementation of the approach at the level of the whole state opens up new opportunities for combating counterfeit products, collecting statistical industry-wide data, and providing new universal tools for controlling and managing the industry at the federal level. It should be noted that similar projects have already been launched in such areas as pharmaceuticals, fur coats, tobacco products, alcohol.

EU's Call for Proposals: Regenerative medicine: from new insights to new applications

Regenerative medicine offers hope for untreatable disease and the ageing population, improved quality of life and reduced medical costs. However, so far, regenerative medicine has not yet proved itself in the clinic beyond rare diseases or conditions of limited public health importance. With recent scientific discoveries opening up new approaches to regenerative medicine, the challenge is to use these to extend the regenerative approach to major diseases and conditions.

EU's Call for Proposals: Innovative approaches to urban and regional development through cultural tourism

The various forms of cultural tourism in Europe are important drivers of growth, jobs and economic development of European regions and urban areas. They also contribute, by driving intercultural understanding and social development in Europe through discovering various types of cultural heritage, to the understanding of other peoples' identities and values. However, although cultural tourism by its nature invites cross border regional and local cooperation, its full innovation potential in this respect is not yet fully explored and exploited.
